JERUSALEM — President Bush’s historic speech to the Israeli parliament was as telling for what it didn’t say as for what it did.
In 22 minutes, Bush offered one of the strongest demonstrations of support for Israel ever made by an American president. And he reawakened lingering hopes among hawks in Israel or the United States for a U.S. military strike to thwart Iran’s nuclear program.
Israel’s Army Radio reported Friday that the possibility of an American strike on Iran was raised in private discussions during Bush’s visit.
And Mark Regev, spokesman for Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, said that the Israeli prime minister and American president were “on the same page” on the issue of Iran.
“Both Israel and the United States agree that tangible steps have to be taken, that we cannot sit idly by and see Iran develop a nuclear weapon and that the international community has an obligation to take tangible steps to prevent that from happening,” said Regev.
